Arlington is renovating turf in sections 4, 43, and 69
Arlington National Cemetery completely renovates more than 30 acres of turf each year, which includes removing the old turf, tilling the soil and planting new turf from seed. Each year the maintenance crews work on a rotating basis, renovating different sections as needed.
This fall, crews are doing turf renovations in sections 4, 43, and 69. Right now and continuing for the next several weeks, you will notice signs in these sections/areas where work is being completed.
Unless you are visiting a particular grave in a section, we ask that you please refrain from excessive walking on these areas when possible.
There will be a planned application outage for the Arlington National Cemetery website and ANC Explorer application on Saturday, Aug. 23, starting at 8 p.m. EDT. This outage will affect portions of the ANC website, including Find a Grave, the Funeral Schedule and all of ANC Explorer. We do not expect the outage to continue past 10 p.m. EDT.
Arlington National Cemetery's app "ANC Explorer" connects families, visitors and the public to the cemetery's rich history and all of those who rest here by enhancing their onsite visit or allowing them to visit "virtually" whenever they want.
